One of my favorite people is graduating 8th grade & heading to high school! Miss Kelsey is the daughter of one of my best friends. She is absolutely fantastic & I wanted to create a special card for her to celebrate!
The CAS-ual Fridays Sketch Challenge was a great sketch for my card.
I thought this color combo from the Stampin' Royalty DT was perfect for the card I wanted to create!
Supplies: All Stampin' Up! Except the Cake Doily & Acetate
Cardstock: Whisper White
DSP: Wild Wasabi Stripes (printed from My Digital Studio), Daffodil Delight Polka Dots, Ice Cream Parlor Accents (retired)
Stamp: Strength & Hope, Word Play
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo
Accessories: SMOOCH Spritz in Gold Glow, SMOOCH Pearlized ink in Gold Lame, Iridescent Ice Embossing powder, Scallop Trim Borber Punch
Side note: Sometimes it's not easy using different color combos and this one from Colour Q was a little challenging for me. I loved the way this card turned out in the end! In fact, I was honored to find out it was chosen as one of the top cards from both the Stampin' Royalty gals & the Colour Q Royal Court DT! Stretch those boundaries & you'll be amazed at the wonderful creations you create! :)
Have a fab day!
